It is normal for very new technology to be foreign and unaccepted for a while before people get comfortable with it. The microwave presently a household staple in almost every single American house was not always accepted and relied upon. It was feared when introduced, but people learn to trust the new technology as the saw it was safe to use and reaped of its benefits. The same goes for home automation and all it represents.

What is a smart home?
